Today, everyone would be concerned about Rodman and any potential mental health issues. I mean, he was found with a gun in his car after going missing and kind of just went back to playing. Seems like he more or less dealt with everything on his own, in his own way - for better or for worse. Playing for Phil was probably the best thing for him since Phil had that "life is bigger than basketball" philosophy. He took the same approach with Rose in NY when Rose went AWOL.

Draymond is just an asshole.

I feel really sorry for Rodman with the horrible upbringing he seemed to go through, having his father abandon him, growing up dirt poor in the projects, being around crime and drugs and violence, etc.

I was on the fence about pursuing an Aaron Gordon trade this summer. This pushes me in the “let’s not” direction.

I have no idea what is going on in this thread, but wish I was drinking what y'all are.

I've been enjoying Discovery even though I'm reading that a lot of Trekkies think it's too mature and dark. It is weird though how the theme music and opening credits remind me of Westworld.

I got through 2 episodes of Discovery. The newest Trek shows just don't feel like Trek to me. It's supposed to be about extremely competent officers, engineers, scientists working together in harmony to solve tough problems. The recent shows are more about melodrama and explosions and special effects and crap like that.

At it’s heart, it is. But you wouldn’t know that if you’ve only seen the first 2 episodes. I’m two episodes from the end of the first season.

In fact, after finishing season 1, that's exactly what it is.
